The leading experts in SPECT imaging share their experience and expertise in utilizing this modality in the diagnosis and evaluation of various cardiac, neurologic, pulmonary, skeletal and gastrointestinal disorders. Both established and evolving applications are highlighted, as are the relative advantages of SPECT in different clinical settings. "Clinical SPECT Imaging" gives due consideration to the technical as well as the clinical. The underlying basic science of SPECT is duly reviewed, with in-depth coverage of current instrumentation, data acquisition and processing, quality control and newer reconstruction techniques. The book's account of quantitative SPECT explores the promise it holds for correlative imaging and for dosimetry planning in radionuclide therapy. In addition, an update on multimodality image fusion asseses its increasing importance in tandem with SPECT's growing role in the comprehensive imaging workup.
